Volunteer Resources

Welcome, Girl Scout volunteers!

You belong to a network of nearly one million adults who share an important commitment: preparing girls to lead successful lives.

Now you can prepare yourself to be a more successful volunteer!

Check out these online resources and training courses that you can access whenever it’s convenient for you.

Girl Scouting 101 
Class is in session—whenever you’re ready! This self-paced, 45-minute course is your online orientation to Girl Scouting, and is required for all volunteers before starting a volunteer position. Just sign in to get started. 

Volunteer Essentials 
Get just about everything you need as a Girl Scout volunteer, including basic facts and forms, as well as tips on planning outdoor activities, managing troop finances, promoting safety, arranging trips, selling cookies, and more. 

Safety Activity Checkpoints 
Every adult in Girl Scouting is responsible for the physical and emotional safety of girls, and we follow these guidelines at all times. From archery to hiking, outdoor cooking to ziplining, get checklists to help everyone stay safe—and have fun! 

Volunteer Toolkit* 
The Volunteer Toolkit is a new digital planning tool that gives you resources and program content to get your year started—and keep it going smoothly! Fully customizable, the toolkit is digitally responsive so you can plan and prepare practically anywhere.

Girls have more fun when they can shape their own experience, do hands-on activities, and work together as teams. With the new toolkit, girls and leaders can explore meeting topics and program activities together, and follow the fun as they plan their Girl Scout year.

*Member authentication is required. 


Volunteer Webinars

The 2020 Girl Scout Volunteer Webinars and Symposium build upon the success of our inaugural Volunteer Symposium through a multi-tiered approach. The 2020 Volunteer Symposium served as a convention for New Jersey’s Girl Scout volunteers, with deep dives into the webinars, presentations by field experts, workshops, and panel discussions.

In Fall 2018, the Girl Scouts of New Jersey hosted a Statewide Girl Scout Volunteer Symposium thanks to a generous grant from The Provident Bank Foundation. We are pleased to share these webinars with you.
